Notes / Commercial Description:
Edward (1917-2002) is our grandfather; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to him and his five children. In his honor, this American Pale Ale is dutifully crafted from American malted barley, a plethora of American hops, our ale yeast and water from Edward’s well. It is unfiltered, naturally carbonated, and dry hopped. Aromatic and flowery, with impressions of citrus and pine, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Edward.

85 IBU

Pale and Caramel malt; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, and Warrior hops; House Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

Light, citrus, thin. No lingering bitterness. A solid brew.

I had this last night at Eulogy in Old City Philadelphia. The bartender described this beer to me as a Belgian-style IPA, but it didn't really have any of that complexity that I expected from a Belgian yeast. So now that I came here to BA to see this listed as an APA it slightly changes my ratings.

The beer was an amber orange, clear with no head. The smell was of fruity hops and a clementine orange and grapefruit aroma that I associate with Amarillo or C hops hops. The beer tasted almost solely of hops: grassy, herbal, with a sustaining bitter finish. The body of the beer was a little thin but good to style, with a dry finish. This was a good beer that I would order again
